Let's get STEAMY- Monthly member bloghop for SnS

Hello, we're getting STEAMY today at SMEARED and SMUDGED

You should have arrived here from Lady Brayton's blog(sniffing Glue Dots) and if you didn't start at the beginning, that is fine because I am last on the list so head over to Terra's blog (more Smeared and Smudged)
This month's theme is Let's get Steamy- Create something STEAMpunk :) and of course there must be stamping on it somewhere!

I made an ATC:
Flights of Fancy
 I took several views, as there is some "shiny" components and I wanted you to be able to see everything there was to see.
 The background paper is olde world paisley design, that I have in my stash in pieces, I do not remember who it is from. sorry. The French ad, which I believe is for some type of Tobacco product, but is steampunk-y due to all the Balloons etc. on it. is from DEZINAWORLD The swallow is on Foam and I rec'd it as a RAK, The cogs are punched from Mirror card stock and coffee cup sleeve(tiny corrugations) using the cog punch by STAMPIN' UP. I used Crystal Effects also by STAMPIN' UP  on all the balloons and derigible, as well as the cog I placed around the swallow's neck. I also placed it on the box of "tobacco product" and the thin line of french advertising at the bottom.
My "Stamping" is simply direct to paper through a piece of punchinella down the side, and then I turned the punchinella over, and pressed the wet ink from the punchinella onto the card also. I used MOMENTO Tuxedo Black ink.

If you missed ANY of the member's blog that are participating this month...the list is right there to the left!

Thanks for visiting :)
